“I’m a mirror who reflects your best self, a sounding board for your deep intelligence, and a navigator to help your star twinkle.” —Nancy Ancowitz
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Nancy at NYU Stern’s Career Center for Working Professionals. At our training luncheons she offered bright insights from her years of experience coaching. Throughout our professional development program, Nancy was a great resource for our students as she brought a unique combination of experience and passion for being a coach.

Nancy’s coaching provided me a multitude of information that included résumé tips, networking advice and self-evaluation, which will prove invaluable in my pursuit of a new challenge in my career.

I’ve known Nancy professionally since our days on Wall Street, starting in the mid-1990’s when we worked together at JP Morgan. We reconnected when I hired [her] as a business communication coach Nancy not only encouraged me, but was able to help boil down complex concepts and make them relevant for my target audience, from creating killer presentations to potential strategic partners to crafting a communications strategy to help launch my business. Additionally, Nancy’s resourcefulness and generosity with opening her Rolodex of professional contacts helped me find expert resources and staff for my business. In summary, Nancy has believed in my abilities and has been nothing short of committed to my success as a professional and as an entrepreneur.

Nancy Ancowitz is probably one of the best career coaches I have had the privilege to work with in my financial services career. First and foremost she is thorough and knowledgeable about all aspects of positioning yourself as an emerging leader who wants to promote oneself without bragging and speaking more effectively. I absolutely recommend Nancy because her personal integrity is impeccable, her product knowledge and expertise are exceptional and her superior talent in presentation and management skills make her a rare individual.

I worked with Nancy to improve my interviewing skills, and she was fantastic at every step of the way. She helped me boil down my elevator speech, advised me on anticipating tough questions, and gave me important pointers on those important intangibles that are critical in interviews. Moreover, she worked with me on perfecting my Skype interviewing technique, and this year I got a job based solely on phone and Skype interviews. In fact, in one post-interview discussion someone remarked that the committee had never spoken with someone by Skype who understood so well how to essentially eliminate the gap that video interviews can cause. I attribute that compliment to Nancy’s great advice and feedback!

Nancy Ancowitz came highly recommended to cover a short-term temporary assignment as a career advisor at the Graduate Career Management Center (GCMC) for MS/MBA students and alumni at the Zicklin School of Business at Baruch College. She brought an impressive background as a marketing vice president on Wall Street, a long-term instructor of career-related courses at NYU, and a coach with extensive experience advising graduate students and professionals around a wide range of career interests. The author of Self-Promotion for Introverts® and a blogger, she is often quoted by the Wall Street Journal and other major publications. She immediately became popular at the GCMC for delivering extremely high-quality career coaching. Nancy remained on the GCMC staff for nearly four years and was a huge asset to our students, alumni, and team.

Nancy broadened my view of career choices and provided the much-needed motivation to succeed. In addition, she introduced me to individuals in her network to broaden my perspective. Nancy is extremely organized by setting defined milestones to keep me on track. Because of these milestones, I was able to secure multiple offers in a down market. Nancy’s customized solution helped me identify overlooked credentials which furthered my confidence. She was also extremely supportive by providing guidance and advice when I was deciding between my offers. I highly recommend Nancy as a career coach to all individuals.
De ZhangVenture Fellow / VU Venture Partners
I originally hired Nancy to help me with me things like structuring my time and holding me accountable to keep my many projects on track, but we accomplished much more together.
She also helped me build my professional network and expand and develop my thinking (in terms of what I could accomplish as a TV comedy writer and a creative person in general).
In addition, she was patient, she was inventive and perhaps most importantly, she was unfailingly supportive, constructive and reassuring. Nancy’s way of working gets results. I’m grateful to her.
